The “iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her: Celebrating Women Who Make Music and Culture,” streamed event will dive into the lives of these three leading female artists, their influence and their continued efforts to flip the status quo. These power female artists share stories of triumph, bravery and innovation resulting in staggering success. In addition to interviews from Gloria Estefan, Lainey Wilson and Latto, the special will feature inspiring thoughts from more women at the top of their game throughout the entertainment industry. It will also share a moment of celebration for the 50th anniversary of hip-hop and highlight emerging female talent from SeeHer’s new artist accelerator platform, Hear Her Music, in partnership with Breakr. The iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her special is designed to honor the women who are shattering stereotypes with their accomplishments, creating opportunities and inspiring generations to trust their own voice and share it with the world.

To kick off the celebration, beginning today, March 1, iHeartMedia will launch weeklong promotions for International Women’s Day across 660 iHeartMedia broadcast stations in every format, on social media platforms and on iHeartRadio’s biggest podcasts.

On March 8, from 5 - 6 p.m. local time, iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations will also devote the hour to playing the biggest hits and new music from today’s female artists and offer special playlists on the iHeartRadio App. The celebration will culminate that evening with the hourlong special with words of wisdom about equality, inspiring confidence and career building.

“At iHeartMedia we are passionate about having women in the industry represented and heard,” said Gayle Troberman, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for iHeartMedia. “This is why we are thrilled to partner with SeeHer for the third year in a row on International Women’s Day to produce a special that not only shares the incredible, eye opening stories of leading women in the music industry, but will also inspire other women to take that leap and pursue a career they are passionate about.

“Music has the power to influence, connect, and inspire in a way that few things can. We are honored and excited to join iHeartMedia again to amplify the voices of women in music because our work is not done yet,” said Christine Guilfoyle, SeeHer President. “A recent report showed that, of popular music, less than 23% of artists, 14 % of songwriters, and 4% of producers were women. We are working to increase the percentages of women in front of and behind the mic, because we all benefit from inclusive representation and authentic storytelling.”

Listeners can join in on the conversation online by using #iHeartWomensDay and #SeeHer throughout the day and during the one-hour special on March 8. For more information on “iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her: Celebrating Women Who Make Music and Culture” visit iheartradio.com/womensday.
